In a not too far future, Steve Battier, a multimillionaire elderly and terminally ill, accepting the offer of a company - RPG - that in return for a high monetary value provides to a very restricted group of clients the possibility to become young again. During 10 hours, 10 millionaires around the world, men and women with fame and power, will be transferred to younger bodies, attractive and healthy to live in a temporary rejuvenation game, very real thrills, where in that every hour someone will die. In the body of a man of 23 years, returning to enjoy the pleasures of sex and experiencing the adrenaline of violence and power over life and death, Steve is willing to do anything to keep young forever... But not always what we have experienced is what appears to be. Written by
I was very interested to see this movie after learning that it had been "made in Portugal" and especially after watching the trailer. However I was hugely disappointed. In fact,I left during the interval, something I have not done in a very long time. The acting was very stilted, I could not get into or enjoy the film. In my opinion, if this movie had been made in Portuguese, that is, actors speaking Portuguese, then the actors and the movie would have come across as more natural. I think they were concentrating so hard on speaking English they forgot how to act. This is a great disappointment as Portugal has produced great films and it is just a pity this is not one of them. The trailer appears to be the best part of the film.
